Box Babe: Vinuthna Garidipuri
Vinuthna, you're an awesome photographer! How'd you get started taking photos?
I started taking pictures when I was in middle school. My parents bought a DSLR camera and I was so excited to learn how to use it. I never took classes for photography so I learnt a lot with Youtube videos and a lot of trial and error!
If you were giving someone advice on getting started in photography, what would you tell them?
My best advice is to just pick up your camera or even your phone and just go out and explore the places around you. Learning to use your current camera or even your phone camera to its maximum potential will help you understand a lot about photography itself!
You are also getting into the tech/programming world? What do you like about programming?
What I like the most about programming is that it takes creativity, efficency, and and solid grasp on technical knowledge. The power of code is truly amazing when you realize you can actually build something from literally nothing.
Do you think programming is a skill everyone should learn? If I wanted to get started today, how would I begin learning and what should I learn?
I think programming is a skill that everyone should have in today’s world. Especially everything around us revolves around big data today. I personally think that learning how to code will only help people so there’s no harm in learning it! For beginners, Khan Academy has amazing resources and Codecademy is a great tool to pick up some coding skills if you have spare time!
Name a book everybody should read right now. Why?
Freakonomics is an interesting read because it has changed the way I look at a lot of things in this world.
Who is the coolest woman you can think of right now? What makes her so cool?
Karlie Kloss is one of the coolest models/technology entrepreneurs. Her ability to promote woman in computer science as well as be a role model for young girls is what makes her so cool.
What's the last purchase you made that simplified your day-to-day life the most?
I recently purchased a battery pack. I have a tendency to forget to charge my phone sometimes or forget my charger. My portable battery has saved me many times this year!
What do you believe to be true that almost no one else agrees with you on?
I believe that everything in life happens for a reason. Even if you can’t see the result immediately, it will surely make sense in the bigger spectrum.
What will we find in your Renzoe Box?
In my Renzoe Box I would have my foundation, eyeliner, and a simple lip color.
How can we find out what you're doing these days?
I’m very active on instagram with my photography, travel, and spontaneous adventures! You can find me @vinuthnagaridipuri
